I always thought becoming a Mother would teach me Patience, and how to be Present, and would clarify for me my own beliefs, reveal to me my greatest strengths and weaknesses, and yes to all of that, but mostly it’s that I now know that this piece of construction equipment is an Excavator. All Joe currently cares about is (are?) Vehicles, so now I drive by construction sites and my brain goes, That is a Digger. That is a Dump truck. My son loves Vehicles!!! I shout out the window to no one, everyone. As does every baby ever, they all reply, rolling off in their Vehicle. CONCRETE MIXER! I shout after them. THAT IS A CONCRETE MIXER!!!!!!!!
